comes from mmorpgs, where you would have a healer in your party and a person with high defense. (i.e. meat sack-o-shield warriors). the warrior rush an opponent and the monk would do their best to keep the warrior alive with healing and stat bonuses. then, the other members could
a)fight and hit hard
b)run away like scared little girls

so, in essence, it is a big distraction to open opportunites for attack or to run away, like a sacrifice but to keepp it alive.

In reference to Magic: The Gathering gameplay. tanking is the act of "going into the tank" coming from 'think tank'. a player "in the tank" is considering their next line of play.
My magic online opponent has been tanking for several minutes now. I'm not sure what he could come out with to save him.

Something robust that is travelling very fast and carrying a lot of momentum, rendering it largely unstoppable and on the edge of potential catastrophe.

Something that you wouldn't want to stand in the way of.

Tanking is the act of going as fast as you can.

The meaning comes from riding mopeds, which are typicaly a slow form of transport. To get them to go faster, a rider can reduce their profile and improve their aerodynamics by laying flat on the fuel tank; "tanking it".
"You got here quickly, didn't you?"
